- Growing up Maori / edited by Witi Ihimaera
GN672 GRO (Call Number)
A unique insight into childhood stories from early this century through to recent times; from the country and, increasingly from the city; from those who had a totally Maori identity to those brought up in an almost completely Pakeha environment. In their own worlds, the contributors express feelings ranging from happiness to, in come cases, torment, of being Maori in a predominantly European environment.
